Julienned Root Vegetables

One thing we really love about Trader Joe's is all their options for frozen vegetables. (Now if only they'd bring back the Parisian carrots...) Recently we tried the julienned root vegetables ($3.29 for 16 ounce bag), a combination of lightly seasoned carrots, beets, parsnips, and sweet potatoes.

I was excited for these, since the ingredients made the side dish healthier than a bag of potatoes, but in the end they were just okay. We didn't do much other than just roast them plain to eat on the side of a salmon burger. They didn't have too much flavor (could have definitely used some more seasoning), and they didn't crisp up like fries as much as I thought they would. A found the texture to be a little bit dry, but we both thought that might have been because we had them in the freezer for a while. 

Buy Again? Maybe, so we can find out whether the texture issues we had were due to keeping them in the freezer for too long. We'll probably add some more seasoning though next time.
